Carbon Footprint Assessment
ESE conducted various product life cycle assessments/carbon footprint assessments for an oil and gas sector client to assess the environmental aspects and potential environmental impacts associated with company’s raw material acquisition, operation, use and end of life treatment of the product. These studies were conducted in accordance with the WRI/WBCSD’s GHG Protocol Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard. Using the results of these studies, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were established to assist the company with setting emission reduction targets and minimizing overall environmental impacts. The results of the analysis were communicated to the company’s stakeholders to assess the potential environmental impacts of the company’s operations to the environment and climate change. The fresh water use from the operations was minimized and subsequently eliminated as part of minimizing the environmental impacts from drilling and completion activities.
